It’s no secret that adjusting to regular life after being in prison can be quite the task for couples on Life After Lockup, and Brittany and Marcelino Santiago are currently feeling the heat.

After Brittany was released from prison, the couple decided to leave Sin City behind and head to Florida. While Marcelino did have some reservations about the move, he ultimately decided to move to the Sunshine State with his family.

Brittany is upset that Marcelino has been distant after their decision to move to Florida.

It’s normal for couples not to see eye-to-eye when it comes to specific issues. However, deciding where to build roots as a family is one that can potentially crack the foundation of any marriage.

Unfortunately, it seems as if Brittany and Marcelino are going through a rough time.

Previously, Marcelino was happy living in Las Vegas, but he realized that Florida life doesn’t suit him.

“I didn’t want to leave Vegas, but I’m here in Florida,” Marcelino says to Brittany while they're in a pool lounge.

“Because you wanted to. Don’t say that I forced you here,” Brittany replies.

“I’m out here because of you … because of my family,” Marcelino says. “This is cool, this is nice, but I can’t get money out here.”

Although Brittany shares that Marcelino was lonely while playing poker in Las Vegas without her, he emphasizes the importance of him making money to provide for their children.

“Brittany’s No. 1 argument is that sometimes she feels that I’m distant," Marcelino says in a confessional. “But I hope my wife can realize that it’s a big sacrifice that I made to make her happy.”

Unfortunately, things begin to go left and the couple leaves the pool lounge.

Will Marcelino return to Las Vegas?

Now that Brittany is fully aware that Marcelino is not 100 percent happy in Florida, it’s hard to tell where the couple will go from here.

Unfortunately, Brittany gets upset at Marcelino’s sentiments about being able to provide and take care of the kids.

“I feel neglected Marcelino,” Brittany says. I moved all the way out here. I took a risk.”

“Yeah, so did I,” Marcelino replies.

Brittany begins to scold Marcelino for seemingly caring more about the casino, the kids, and life in Las Vegas than her. The pair continue to exchange words with each other in the parking lot.

As a result, Brittany yells at Marcelino about not loving her and “making a better effort when she was in prison.”

The parking lot verbal fight ends with Brittany telling Marcelino to go back to Las Vegas and refusing to get in his truck for them to go home.
